SEMICON Returns to Penang After the Worldwide Pandemic 

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, SEMICON Southeast Asia 2022 returned to the Setia SPICE Convention Centre in Penang, Malaysia. A wide-scale event that attracts those in the semiconductor and microelectronics industry. It is a gathering for the leading semiconductor companies, start-ups, and research institutions to discuss the latest developments in the industry attracting over 50,000 attendees from more than 100 countries and regions. The conference features keynote speeches, panel discussions, and high-level meetings with a focus on the future of semiconductors.

Progressive semiconductor organisations are implementing practices to reduce the environmental impact of their businesses. SEMICON has been working with partners and exhibitors to explore ways to have the industry leaders focus more on sustainability and supply chain resilience.  

Furthermore, in an exclusive interview, SEMI president and CEO Ajit Manocha said the longer-term growth outlook is exceptional. “SEMICON will continue to grow and that’s because the semiconductor industry is going to continue to grow,” Manocha said. “China’s semiconductor demand is going up, India’s semiconductor demand is growing, and in Europe we’re seeing a lot of new companies.”

An Engineering Company with an Umbrella Body of Industry Leading Solutions 

White Umbrella emerges in the scene as a forward-thinking engineering company and joins the prestigious event at Malaysia’s very own Silicon Valley in Penang. There we highlighted our air solution series with Cold Plasma technology and top-of-the-line power sources from Taiwan and Germany. Our portfolio aims to provide the best possible variety of resources for the supply chain in semiconductors and electronics.  

Air Solutions: An Endemic Essential for Providing the Best Air Quality All Around

We introduced our Cold Plasma Flesta Series that utilise the power of bipolar ionisation. Live demonstrations and explanations were held at our booth where we elucidated the benefits of using this to improve indoor air quality. Our goal was to promote the importance of safeguarding employees aligning with the concept of conscious capitalism where people and the environment are at the forethought of any business practice. 

Cold Plasma Technology is a new innovation that has been developed to provide sterilisation and disinfection. It is a safe and effective way of getting rid of harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, moulds and other microorganisms that can cause illness or disease. 

The ioniser works by generating cold plasma from the air which then releases a stream of ions into the air. These ions are bipolar in nature and have an oxidising effect on organic matter like bacteria, viruses and fungi. The ionising process also destroys any odours in the air making it more pleasant for those who are around it. 

The technology has been designed to be used in residential homes, offices, hospitals, schools etc. It can be installed as a standalone unit or as part of an integrated HVAC system. 

Power Solutions: Providing World-Class Power Sources to Semiconductor Manufacturers 

From AC to DC programmable and non-programmable power supplies, we ensure quality in all the products we have on offer.  There are two main types of power supplies: AC and DC. AC power supplies generate voltages between 100V and 240V while DC power supplies generate voltages between 5V and 30V. Semiconductor manufacturing facilities often use both AC and DC power supplies, but if they are going to operate 24/7 then AC is usually preferred for its greater reliability.  

AC power supplies are more common in semiconductor factories because they have longer lifetime and tolerance for fluctuation. However, they have some drawbacks: they consume more energy than DC power supplies and they cannot handle high voltages (above 300V). For these reasons, many semiconductor manufacturers are switching to DC power supplies in their production lines. DC power supplies save energy by using less energy than AC. They also take up less space than AC units because they do not need transformers or other means of transferring electricity from one place to another. DC power supply is a critical component in semiconductor manufacturing. It is used to provide the necessary voltage and current for all of the equipment that needs to be powered in the facility, including PCBs, wafers, and other test equipment.  

For more than a decade Semicon has been providing the industry with a comprehensive range of semiconductor related product solutions and services; from basic materials through to the latest in-situ inspection solutions. At White Umbrella, we maintain a relentless pursuit to create industry changing solutions.
